Held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C., Caliber Home Loans, Inc. returned as a Gold Sponsor for the second year. In addition to military spouses from all over the world, the USO event was attended by Congressional members, senior military, and Department of Defense leadership.

MILITARY SPOUSE® magazine founded the Military Spouse of the Year® (MSOY) award in 2008 to honor those who support and maintain the home front while their service member spouses defend our nation. The Military Spouse of the Year® award recognizes these contributions and unwavering commitment to the military community and our country.

The role of the military spouse – overlooked for decades – is now recognized, and receiving well-deserved support. SVP, National Director of Military & Retail Business Development Bryan Bergjans described Caliber’s support and recognition of the annual award:

“It's important for Caliber to support military spouses, as they didn't take an oath to serve our nation. Instead, they made a commitment to honor and support the person they love, who did take that oath. Military spouses serve our country by taking care of the home front, enabling service members to perform their duties and ensure mission readiness.”

2017 Spouse of the Year brings her skills to Caliber

Last year’s winner, Brittany Boccher, formally turned over her duties to 2018 winner Krista Simpson Anderson before beginning her new duties as a member of Caliber Home Loans’ military lending team. During her time as Spouse of the Year, Brittany was a highlighted speaker at Caliber’s 2017 Veterans Day luncheon. Her management skills and ability to thrive under pressure are just two of the valuable skills that military spouses share, which are excellent incentives for potential employers.
